To sum up, current chess analytic tools are limited to the technology of chess engines: they can tell what the best move(s) are and what their evaluation is. This can be wrapped up with human words like inaccuracy or blunder but not much more. One can squeeze out some chess concepts from the engines’ evaluation function. However, this is an inadequate alternative as the chess engines evaluation function is inaccurate and falls far beyond even an average human chess player understanding.
In contrast, DecodeChess is the first to tackle the AI problem of how human chess thinking is done and to mimic it by a computer program. It creates a model of chess player thinking which is backed by the accuracy and enormous search power of the computer. This enables DecodeChess to reveal the underlying chess thinking behind the plain moves. The result is an explanation affluent with chess ideas that are demonstrated by concrete examples.
